Dear WCS Families,
Thank you so much for all the food that was given! Thousands of items were collected, so it will be a blessing for some families in need. Every den did an excellent job, but the winner is (drum roll, please)……….. the BLACK DEN!!!!
Tara Mergerner, KWTX posted a quick story about our food drive on Facebook. Check it out!
On November 11, our school and the rest of America came together to appreciate and honor our Veterans. Brave men and women have fought and died to protect this country, and they are still fighting today. Our school wanted to honor them the best we could. Middle school created a banner and quite a few posters to carry at the parade. They represented our school at the Veteran’s Day Parade very well. Some students celebrated freedom week by learning about veterans and what it means to be free. Other students studied the Declaration of Independence. Our students were even able to watch the parade from their classroom and they also sent in a text to thank our veterans. However, sometimes the true meaning of this day is overshadowed by candy and parades. So, if you know someone in the military or who has served in the military, take the time to say thank you. People are putting their lives on the line for not just their families but for everyone who comes after them, so they can have a better tomorrow.
Get ready wildcats because WCS is holding another box-top competition! The competition will be held December 1-9th and the money raised will be used towards the PAWS fun events and our school needs. This year we have earned $183.60 in total, and we are hoping to raise more than $390 to beat last year’s goal. This year, the winning den will get a hot cocoa and Christmas cookie party!
As a young student, I’ve always loved box-top competitions because they are very challenging and fun. It is always suspenseful to see who will win. This is a good way to raise money for our school. I always thought of it as a scavenger hunt when I was younger. I’d used to go to the store with my mother and whenever I found a box of Cheerios with a box-top, I acted like I just found buried treasure. Our wonderful school has offered this competition for a while. As a seventh grader, I am determined to make this one the best. It helps greatly for parents to have their box tops already cut to size, check for expired dates, and label them in Ziploc bags of 50 with your den name on them. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you would like to help count. I hope all our dens will be good participants and make sure to bring in TONS of box-tops. So get your scissors ready, and whenever you see a box-top, get to cutting!
The Music/Drama performance was on November the first. It was hosted by the choir teacher, Mrs. Barlow. The performance was performed by 4th graders to 8th graders. It consisted of 4 songs: Sing Praise, Animals A-Comin’, Chantez Alleluia, and Mighty to Save. The performance also consisted of 4 skits: the first skit was How to Be Spiritually Fit, the second skit was Karate Kid?, the third skit was The Love Gong Show, and the fourth skit was The Truth Of The Life Zone. The skits were silly and hilarious. The students gave a great singing and acting performance that night. All the students and audience really seemed to enjoy the music and skits. It was a great time for fun, family, and laughs for everyone who attended.
Third graders are getting a head start on their how-to papers by doing “research” on how to make pie in a cup.
